Meeting Someone Like Brian on ActiveRain in the Rain

Inspirational Post for Sunday, 4/14/19

by Patricia

 

Meeting someone like Brian England on ActiveRain and his beautiful family in the Texas Rain was such a blessing! Although the mighty storm blew powerful winds and the rain pounded down hard and fast on top the tin roof of the restaurant where we visited and had lunch together on Saturday, we had a wonderful visit!

 

Texas Longhorns, a tornado about 125 miles south of Dallas in a small town called Franklin, and buckets of rain couldn't keep me away! Brian is such an intelligent and nice man. After meeting his parents, I know why! He was raised right and what a fascinating family. I had no idea that Brian England was actually born in England! I loved listening to his mother's stories. And I noticed Brian has the same twinkle in his eyes like his father. They are a genuine family with good values and worldly knowledge and experiences. 

 

 

 

 

It is fun to blog and to get to know one another on a creative writing and educational blog designed for the Real Estate Community, but to meet someone in person gives you a completely different perspective. Although it would have been nice to have a photo of us together, that didn't happen. For me, it was a really bad hair day! Blame it on the rain but the experience of it left me and them with miles of smiles. If you ever have the opportunity to meet Brian England, please don't let anything or anyone stop you!

Michael Jacobs - I think one of the qualifications one has to have in this profession is to be committed and deliver as promised. Your analogy to the Post Office is very apropos! 

Brian England mentioned he met you in person too and it was obvious to me, he thinks very highly of you.

Wayne Martin - I am pretty certain Brian England would enjoy meeting you too!

I would also like to meet you one day in my original home town. Are you on Face Book? There is a group I belong to called "Pictures of Chicago." It is a just place to post photos (past, historical, or present photos) most of which are right in your own backyard - Lake Michigan. It would be perfect for you!

Nina Hollander - Rest assured, Brian England mentioned how fortunate he was to meet you in Phoenix a while back. Meeting in person with purpose is a beautiful thing. I can completely understand why the two of you feel the way you do. What an honor!

Hi Patricia... I had no idea I was the subject of any conversation... no wonder my nose was twitching!  Nothing like meeting up with AR friends in person. Right now, I'm waiting for Joan Cox to arrive in Charlotte in September. She'll be spending a couple of days at my house.

Good morning Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP ,

There is nothing like meeting friends in Active Rain! I'm so glad you were able to have lunch with him and his family! Brian is a favorite of mine here in the rain and I'm sure despite the weather you had a great visit. It was nasty here on Saturday..the winds were so strong!

HI Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - I have had the opportunity to meet Brian many times at Phoenix-area AR meet-ups.  Ironically, he had a wedding in Sedona and we planned a lunch at a very scenic restaurant but the weather was horrible. Snow, snow and more snow.  He decided to head out early to beat the snow.

I am so glad you got to meet him.

Barbara Todaro - No kidding! Brian England said the same thing about you about "being one of his all-time favorites here" too! 

Personally, I know I'm not the only one who worships everything about you and what you represent to us here on ActiveRain! There is no doubt in my mind, that Brian has cultivated life-long friends on ActiveRain from coast-to-coast.

Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR - If only our cities were closer, I know we could have many big AR meet-ups. I still hope someday, it is possible for you and me to meet for a visit. 

It's wonderful that you also consider Brian England as a favorite of yours. I'm sure he feels the same way about you, as I do. Dorie, your heart is like Brian's, always in the right place.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - Coincidently, Brian England and I talked about others we would like to meet in person some day and you and Bernie were at the top of the list. We mutually agreed, we like what you bring to us here on ActiveRain. You really have made quite an impression and I feel confident enough to say, others would agree.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® - I think I could speak for everyone on ActiveRain that the City of Phoenix and the entire State of Arizona, in general, is well-rounded with extraordinary representation throughout the state! I do recall seeing one of those photos of a meet-up you spoke about. I have been to several cities in AZ and I must say, Sedona would be my first choice for a meet-up.
